Le Parlement et Le Centre de Festival d'Adelaïde


Aujourd'hui, voici une vue du Balcon de Juliette à l'arrière du Parlement d'Adelaïde, (qui vous auriez vu ici, le 20 août, l'année dernière.)
Vers la droite est le Centre de Festival d'Adelaïde, achevé en 1973 pour $21.000.000.
Par comparaison, le théatre de l'Opéra de Sydney, également achevé en 1973, a coûté $102.000.000.
Tandis que le Centre de Festival peut ne pas être une icône, internationalement reconnaissable comme l'Opéra de Sydney, ses acoustiques sont considérées le supérieur lointain, un des meilleure en Australie. Je vous montrerai plus de photos de ce bâtiment, en les jours à venir.
Parliament House and the Festival Centre : Adelaide.
Here, today, is a view of the Juliet Balcony at the rear of Adelaide's Parliament House, (that you would have seen here on the 20th August, last year.)
To the right is the Adelaide Festival Centre, completed in 1973 for $21,000,000. In comparison, the Sydney Opera House, also completed in 1973, cost $102,000,000.
While the Festival Centre may not be an internationally recognisable icon like the Opera House, its acoustics are considered far superior, one of the best in Australia.

I have found that acoustics make all the difference...We have a building in Omaha called The Holland Centre where the acoustics will make you weep.

Anything with a Jules' balcony must be neat!!!!

Bad Luck - My flight has been cancelled and I don't get out until late this afternoon - sigh - the joys of air travel!!!!
But Good Luck - I now have a few extra moments to catch up with you!!!!

I never have taken a shine to that opera house in Sydney. Give me Adelaide any day of the week!

It looks not unlike our South Bank Centre: ugly on the outside but acoustically spiffy on the inside.
I wonder if it's possible to get both right; nobody's done it yet. If I had a hundred million to spare I'd get Zaha Hadid to have a go.

Catching up. Still no Internet but at my neighbour's now. It's so nice to see these shots of Adelaide's beautiful architecture. Love your night shots too.

re the article in the Int. Herald Tribune. It was published on Saturday. Perhaps you don't get the same edition in Oz and that's why you can't find it? If you click on the link I gave on Monte Carlo, you can read the article but of course you don't get the photos. I scanned the newspaper to show the relevant photo - see my Monte Carlo blog.

I thought it looked like a hospital.

Et l'arbre qui cache l'immeuble le plus haut, qu'est-ce que c'est ?

Mon petit doigt m'a dit que c'était votre 500ème post aujourd'hui. C'est vrai ?

Ou est-ce demain seulement ?

Dans tous les cas un grand bravo. (Et bravo aussi pour la qualité de votre français, c'est très impressionnant.

A little bird told me that, today, you'd be posting your 500th post. Is that true?

Or is it only tomorrow?

Anyway, a big round of applause to you (not only for your 500th post but also for the quality of your French, which is quite spectacular I must say.
